Silsden Allstars majorettes have given a £2,000 boost to Manorlands.

The cash was raised when the troupe’s new fundraising committee staged its first event, a ladies’ day-themed race night at Sunny Bank Social Club in Silsden.

About 130 people attended and a total of £4,000 was raised, with proceeds split between the Allstars and the Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice.

Andrew Wood, for Sue Ryder, said: “I’d like to thank the group for its hard work to made its first event such a success”

The Allstars thanked everyone who attended, with special mention to Skipton Hand Car Wash and Carol O’Driscol at the club for their support. The troupe, which meets at Silsden Town Hall, welcomes new members and can be contacted via its Facebook page.
